The results

Post Results analysisHow Scotland voted & why – Lord Ashcroft Polls (pdf)

18 September

  • Polling stations open at 7am and close at 10pm
  • Across Scotland’s 32 local authorities, there will be 2,608 polling places/stations in local schools and halls, with a total of 5,579 individual polling stations inside.
  • 4,285,323 people have registered to vote.
  • 109,533 16 & 17 year olds have registered to vote
  • 789,024 have registered for a postal vote.
  • 4,410,288 people over 16, it is estimated, are resident in Scotland,

TURNOUT – ACTUAL  85 %

Apparently there are no exit polls being conducted so the likely first stat to be divulged will be turnout.

In the last three elections the Scottish figures were:

  • UK General Election 2010 – 63.8%
  • Scottish Parliament General Election 2011 – 50.6%
  • European Parliament Elections 2014 – 33.5%

It is widely expected that turnout today will be high some even estimating it could be above 80%.

The University of Reading have done some analysis of historic turnout and have detailed some of the records which may be at risk. We think it will be over 70%.
